It is a hectic time for not just students but also colleges preparing for Delhi University admissions — more so for colleges that hold entrance examinations for different courses.

Not only do they have to set question papers for the tests, but also conduct a detailed registration process.

“It is really like conducting a separate examination. But one has to do so for some subjects like English and mass media. Our college is the only one to offer a Bachelor’s degree course in Mass Media and Mass Communication (BMMMC),” said Manaswini Yogi, Indraprastha College (IP) media coordinator.

IP College will conduct tests on three days: on June 19 for English and June 23 and June 30 for the BMMMC course. Applicants for the BMMMC course will also have to appear for an interview.

Sports trial for the college will be held on June 20 and June 21. Ramjas and Hindu colleges will conduct their entrance exams for English Honours on June 19 and June 28, respectively.

“There is a separate registration process for students applying for the English entrance exam. They have to pay a fee of Rs 50 and get their Class XII marksheet verified. Humanities students must have an aggregate of 73 per cent in their best of four subjects, while science and commerce students must have 76 per cent and 83 per cent, respectively, to appear for the test,” said Debraj Mookerjee, reader, English Department, Ramjas.

Students who get a low overall score but do well in their English exam have some hope at Ramjas. They can appear for the test if they have a best of four score of 60 per cent, along with 85 per cent marks in English core or 65 per cent in English elective.

“This will give students who are exceptionally good in English a chance to take the test,” said Mookerjee.
